More than 3 million members fight for what really matters:

Health Care
Our families need to have access to affordable, quality health care, regardless of income level, pre-existing conditions or employment status.

Good Jobs
As Pam, a Working America member from Cincinnati puts it, “You can’t put money into the economy if you don’t have a job."

Retirement Security
There are three key ingredients to security in retirement: personal savings, pensions through your job and Social Security. We need to make sure everyone has a chance at all three.

Quality Education
America’s kids should be able to get a quality education. It’s not just the right thing to do for children—it’s absolutely essential to a strong economy in years to come.

Corporate Accountability
For decades, corporate power has been increasing, in the economy and in our political system—and the power of ordinary working people has eroded.

Unemployment insurance matters to workers and to the national economy.

Workplace Rights
All workers deserve fair treatment and respect in the workplace.
